Crap. I Almost Forgot To Write This.

April 12, 2012


Erin Schrader

Oh you guys, I screwed this one up.
You see, I had this grand idea to do an Awkward & Awesome post today…
And then I realized, I don’t have the stupid document that I keep all of my A&A moments on with me.
I do know that I had written something down about how awkward it is to watch people eat bananas in public, and now that is all my brain can think about.
Eating a banana in public.
Oh, act like that isn’t awkward.
And no, I do not need to expand on why I find this to be one of the more awkward things in life.
If you can’t figure it out, go ask your dad.

Which brings me to my next awkward point that I just remembered.
I wore this dress to church on Easter.

And if that isn’t bad enough–I sat across from my dad at Easter brunch in this dress.
Why is this awkward you may ask?
Let me tell you.
It was the girls.
Sometimes they just don’t know how to stay put.
And those little ladies did not want to stay anywhere on Easter.
So church and father if you are reading–I apologize.
It was not my intention to flash those suckers at ya, it just kinda happened.
I now remember why it took me 10 years to break that baby out of my closet.
True story.
10 years.
That’s one heck of a commitment to a single article of clothing.

Speaking of clothing, guess who went shopping tonight?
I may or may not have hit the jackpot.
And while you will see it all I am sure at one point or another, all you need to know is that I am presently obsessing at my new necklace that is hanging out beside me on the desk.
I suppose I could take a picture of her so you could see how pretty she is.
One second.

Thank you Miss Chic for making all of my dreams come true with that one.
You always know how to put a smile on my face.

I really don’t know where I am going with this post.
But I do know that eating bananas in public is awkward.
Along with flashing your church on Easter Sunday.
But somehow, pretty necklaces make all of the above seem tolerable.

I guess that is the point of the post.
Go buy a pretty necklace.
Your life will seem normal for a brief second.

You know what else to do?
Go over here and meet one of my favorite {and I mean favorite} ladies I have met through blogging.
This girl has touched my heart in ways I will never be able to appropriately express. She is one of the most beautiful human beings inside and out that I have never ever met. Okay, so we haven’t ever actually “met”. But we will someday. And it will be a glorious moment. In fact, it will be a moment of wonderful 😉
